Im in the twilight zone. It's MAY 5th!

possibly one of the all-time worst contracts in the history of sports. This was a win now type of signing as they will not be able to move his contract in the later years. He is only making $12M this year but he will making roughly $30M per year in the final 2-3 seasons when he is over 40 years of age. If the don't win a title in the next couple of years with Albert, they might be in trouble because his contract will be a big reason why they won't be competing in a few years.
Unless baseball institutes a salary cap, it's not that big an issue... Arte Moreno has no issues with spending money for his team and money isn't much of a problem with new TV contracts in the So Cal area. It will suck for smaller markets to try and compete for top players though...
/I'm so glad McCourt is no longer an owner...
we need owners like that as the Braves wont spend the money to bring the big guns needed to compete for a title
Arte Moreno is one of a kind... I always wished he bought the Dodgers instead of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim...
We have the Guggenheim Group now with Magic Johnson as minority order, so I'll take that too.
Al sits, Angels win.
And Pujols is mad bro. Shouldn't he be happy? Your team won. Oh, I forgot, the Angels are all about keeping El Hombre happy, not winning baseball games...
I don't think there are very many Angels fans on the Big Board. You're not going to get very many bites imo.
Apparently I am both the only Bruin and Angel fan on this entire board.
I still appreciate the Angels for preventing Barry Bonds from winning the WS.
Too bad I can't say the same about Braves, Phillies, or Rangers letting the Giants win it two years ago...
Bonds is one of my favorite players of all time.
In memory of Tusks.
You're trolling right?

He's one of the greatest baseball players ever, Barry just balances it out by being one of the worst human beings ever.
OP should change the thread title to "Albert Poo-holes."
I hate him because he was a first ballot hall of famer without steroids and he ruined it..... Just can't stand that he let greed ruin one of the greatest careers in history
sounds about right
I hate Scott Spezio
The alcoholic first baseman right? Also won with STL in 06? Whoever beats the Giants I'm happy.
Pujols has finally hit his first HR of the year.
The true 2010 World Series MVP is Brooks Conrad (who should be banned from the state of Georgia for life). Without his great efforts of helping the Giants, they don't get past the Braves at all.
I forgot that was an elimination game, oh wait it wasn't. I'm sure the Braves would've beaten Lincecum with their number 2, he only struck out 14 in a CG shutout the first time and beat Halladay his next time out.

He was one of the greatest natural talents ever. He played in an era where many players did steroids and the league did absolutely nothing to curb it. He wasn't on an even playing field until he started roiding up and he turned in some of the best seasons ever seen. If he was the only one roiding it would be a problem to me but he wasn't. He wanted to be the best and to be the best he had to enhance like the rest.
